Quilt Sandwich

This is how I prepare my quilts for quilting. First I clear a space off the floor. Then I lay down my cutting board.
Next I tape the backing down with blue painters tape.

Lay down the batting next. It is a requirement that little hands and feet get in the way.

Next I lay out the quilt.

Then I pin it using those curved pins. Now I am ready to quilt. How do you prepare your quilt sandwiches?

  1. I do mine the same way, just replace the little feet with kitty feet. :) Unfortunately though, I do not have a large space of uncarpeted floor, so I pin mine on the carpet. Luckily it's Berber, so it's pretty easy to kind of lift the layers up and not catch the carpet, though sometimes I do, but it's easy enough to take that one pin out and redo. :) Thanks for sharing your method!
